#1 A New Year

Just for fun 🙂 This is a personal blog where I hope to write about various things that interest me throughout the year. I have no specific content plans, I just want to see what unfolds as the days go by. Carnet, is French for notebook. 365 is the number of days in the year…

2021 Week 23 Things to do.

Some things I’m doing :)The first one is, learning to crochet. I even got a sparkly crochet hook in the hope it will make my efforts easier. I’m not great at craft type things, but I have the desire to try. I’m also starting this novel I got for twenty cents. I found out, upon…

2021 Week 22 Sources of Hope

Hope can be found. Sometimes in surprising places. Hope can be nurtured 🙂 Sources of inspiration for me in the last little while include books, websites and music. Not long ago I, finished reading The Midnight Library by Matt Haig and it left me brimming with hope and possibilities. I was having positive epiphanies all…

2021 Week 21 Self-Care

I’m not certain when I first heard the term self-care, I do know that there was a time I hadn’t heard it 🙂 So what is it? I think it’s showing love to your self by doing things that light you up, make you feel happy or relaxed. Basically, doing things you enjoy. Things that…

2021 Week 20 UFO’s

2021 Week 18 Luck

2021 Week 17 Snap! It’s a lockdown!

It’s lockdown time again where I live. It’s for three days and we will find out tomorrow, Monday the 26th of April, whether the government will be extending it. In other news, I just finished watching the series called Stranger Things. I really enjoyed it and if you like sci-fi you might like it too….

2021 Week 16 Keep cooking :)

Cooking is something that I enjoy and results in good things to eat. I love to eat and it makes sense to me that I love to cook. If I’m not feeling my chirpy, over talkative self, cooking is an activity that uplifts me and helps me to connect to the world outside of my…

2021 Week 15 Atmosphere of the Heart

Sometimes so empty Bursting Shallow as a puddle Sometimes expansive like an ocean like the universe infinte Bursting an abyss Love all encompassing a cloud in a clear sky
